Preparing to live in residence

Move-In day is a very exciting moment whether this is the first time you are leaving home or you have been a graduate student.  We know you are already in planning mode.  This information is provided to answer some of your move-in questions.  More detailed information will be available two weeks prior Residence Move-In.

Move-in day

Move in Day is Sunday September 4th, 2022 *.

*This may need to be adjusted to a multiple day Move In between Sept 1st and 7th depending on the COVID-19 regulations/restrictions in place later in the summer. Assigned move in dates will depend on your room assignment. Move in dates and times will be made available by mid-August so you have time to prepare.

Students in Brock Suites can move in starting September 1st.

Early arrivals are not available.  You will receive your assigned date and time prior to move-in.   If you’ll be arriving late, please let us know in advance by emailing

You will receive your room assignment via your Brock Office 365 Outlook student email account.  Make sure you set up your Brock email on your phone or email client so you will know when this information comes in or if we have any questions about your application.  Learn more about when these room assignments will come out.

Visit the Residence COVID-19 Information page for currently information.  More information will be available closer to Residence Move-In Day.

Your Brock Student Card is your access to the Brock Community and all of its partners. Your Brock Student Card has your meal plan and flex dollars on it, and will provide access to residence laundry room and service desk lobby.   Prior to move-in day you will be notified by your Brock Office 365 student email on what you need to do in advance of move in for your card. IF you provided your information, you will be given your card at move-in. For more information please visit the Brock Card website at

Residence Buildings

We stress that bricks and mortar don’t make your stay in residence a memorable one. It’s the people with whom you will be living.  360 degree tours of each residence is available on the residence building and amenity page for  descriptions, picture galleries and the 360 tours.


All Brock University Residence rooms are already fully furnished with a twin bed, a dresser, a desk and chair, closet or wardrobe, shelving, and garbage bins. Townhouse Style residences also have furnished living rooms and kitchens equipped with a sofa, a chair, tables, and eating area. If you’re thinking about bringing extra furnishings and/or appliances you MUST read our Allowable Appliances and Allowable Furnishings documents. Due to your room and unit being fully furnished there is limited space for extra furnishings and appliances, and anything that is brought in must be made of metal or plastic. Why? To help reduce fire safety hazards and potential pest problems. Everyone wants to be on the safe side!

You will need to bring your own linens for a single/twin-sized bed.  You will have to wait till you get your room assignment before ordering but it does not mean you can’t start shopping planning your decorating scheme.  Department of Residences has partnered with Residence Linens to facilitate delivery of a linen package for your arrival.   When ordering, ensure you select Brock University as your school and give your correct building and room number you are staying in.

Many student choose to pre-order refrigerator (and freezer for townhouses) rentals so that they meet the residence guidelines for furnishings.  This is not mandatory but to avoid disappointment make sure you review the allowable appliances guide.   The Department of Residences has partnered with Coldex Rentals to help make your transition to living in residence more smoothly.
